First up – Fire The Handicapped!

Donald Trump under fire for mocking disabled reporter

Republican presidential contender Donald Trump has been criticised for mocking a disabled New York Times reporter.

Mr Trump performed an impression of Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from a congenital joint condition, at a rally.

He has used a 2001 article by Mr Kovaleski to back up widely disputed claims that “thousands” of Muslims in New Jersey celebrated the 9/11 attacks.

The New York Times called Mr Trump’s actions “outrageous”.

The press has lied, because Trump never said there were thousands or hundreds of Muslims celebrating the destruction of the World Trade Center. He only used an analogy to indicate the term “tailgate” used by the The Washing post reporters signified there were far more than two such Muslim celebrants.

Sorry Sarasota…most of us want to give it back to them instead of turning the other cheek.

Get our awesome country back by slapping the enemy down just as they do with us. Screw them.

While nobody wants to be mean, this is very obviously a fight for America. It’s far more important to me the the person in charge not be swayed by any kind of pc at all…do what needs to be done – safe zones and micro aggressions etc be damned.

Trump did move his arms like the nytimes writer. But that’s how the writer moves his arms. Is that mocking or is that honest truth? Does it matter?

I love Trump’s fearless war against PC garbage, but I really think this kind of thing is the wrong kind of behavior for a President. It’s one thing to make fun of their ridiculous ideas, but making fun of a person’s illness or appearance is really not the behavior of the kind of gentleman or lady I want for President. I’m not going to bad mouth Trump but I think this is a serious flaw in a candidate.

One more reason my preferred candidate is Ted Cruz: he is always genial and courteous. To me, this was a hallmark of Reagan’s popularity. The media ridiculed him as an “affable dunce”, but people loved him for his decency. It is an American quality that goes back to George Washington: tough as nails, but ever the gentleman, courteous, fair and gracious, even in victory.

Why doesnt trump just stop with the mocking and move on in a more appropriate manner. Like a gentleman, for example.


Yeah, like McCain, or Romney. That is the ticket. Not!

It does not matter one bit how Trump acts, or what he says, the media will distort, misquote, or just lie.

I am sick and tired of Republicans having to play “nice” while getting crapped on.

The voters will decide if they do not like what Trump is saying or how he acts. Certainly Democrat voters do not care if their candidate is “nice” or a “gentleman” or even honest or not a sexual predator.

So, don’t like Trump, simple, don’t support him or vote for him. Me, I would like to see him get even meaner and nastier.

But that is just me and my 2 cents worth.

Exactly.Honestly, I believe the ONLY thing Trump can do now to self destruct is start acting like a mealy mouthed RINO apologist.

What people do not get is that the Trump movement is not really about Trump. He is simply a conduit for the angst, aggravation, fear, uncertainty and raw anger that is out there.

Carson edges Trump in national poll
The Hill ^ | 10/27/15 | Jesse Byrnes
Posted on ‎10‎/‎27‎/‎2015‎ ‎6‎:‎59‎:‎47‎ ‎AM by jimbo123

Ben Carson has edged out fellow GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump in a new national poll, taking the top spot from the real estate mogul for the first time in months.

Carson is supported by 26 percent of GOP primary voters, followed by Trump at 22 percent, according to the CBS News/New York Times poll released early Tuesday. All other candidates follow in the single digits, with Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) at 8 percent and businesswoman Carly Fiorina and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 7 percent each.

The poll represents growing momentum for Carson, who surpassed Trump in several polls in the early voting state of Iowa over the past week ahead of the next GOP debate on Wednesday.

“Ben Carson is now doing well,” Trump acknowledged on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” after the poll came out, adding that he believed Carson would see more scrutiny as a front-runner.

Carson will devour the lame brained hillary and spit out pieces of her scripted message

it is unwise to overlook the fact that Dr Ben has the finest intellect and control of the language of any candidate in modern memory

he will take any progressive utterance and use it to destroy her

she will not know she has been stabbed with his supersharp stiletto mind until the moment she dies

When Carson makes campaign appearances, do you see big crowds? I don’t or have not. If you have links showing me these crowds, please do so. TY

Uh oh – here we go.  I’ve been waiting for the “campaign stop crowds do not equal electoral votes” monster to raise its ugly head, and now it’s here on the Republican side of the equation.
To: Above My Pay Grade

 

Well, the size of the crowds that Trump draws versus the other candidates is a pretty good indicator that the polls showing him in the lead are correct. Indeed, I think they understate his lead, if anything.

To: Jack Hydrazine
How large are the crowds at Carson rallies compared to Trump’s? 

For the umpteenth million time, crowd size measures intensity – not depth of support. Sanders draws much bigger crowds than Hillary most of the time, yet he doesn’t stand a chance of being their nominee.  If crowd size mattered Ron Paul would be President along with President Nader and President McGovern.

You know – if I posted this statement over at the Great Orange Satan, I’d be HRed into oblivion.

I don’t think Carson is even campaigning at the moment, he is off on some book tour. Some thing or event obviously happened to boost Carson at the expense of Trump, I suspect it was those stupid quasi truther 9-11 comments “the Donald” made.

Well, that one wasn’t as much fun as I thought it would be, so let’s try – I prefer “ragheads”!

Words matter in ‘ISIS’ war, so use ‘Daesh’ The Boston Glob ^ | OCTOBER 09, 2014 | Zeba Khan Posted on ‎11‎/‎17‎/‎2015‎ ‎9‎:‎09‎:‎55‎ ‎PM by TBP

French officials recently declared that that country would stop using any of those names and instead refer to the group as “Daesh.”

Whether referred to as ISIS, ISIL, or IS, all three names reflect aspirations that the United States and its allies unequivocally reject. Political and religious leaders all over the world have noted this. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said, “This is a terrorist group and not a state. . . the term Islamic State blurs the lines between Islam, Muslims, and Islamists.”

The term”Daesh” is strategically a better choice because it is still accurate in that it spells out the acronym of the group’s full Arabic name, al-Dawla al-Islamiya fi al-Iraq wa al-Sham. Yet, at the same time, “Daesh” can also be understood as a play on words and an insult. Depending on how it is conjugated in Arabic, it can mean anything from “to trample down and crush” to”a bigot who imposes his view on others.” Already, the group has reportedly threatened to cut out the tongues of anyone who uses the term.

Why do they care so much? The same reason the United States should. Language matters.

****************

If it insults them, then use it, just as 41 pronounced Saddam Hussein’s name to mean “Shoeshine Boy”.

I call them “Islamic State”. Not ISIS. Say the word “Islamic”. That most accurately conveys the worldview that drives their evil.

In other words, you play directly into their hands by referring to them as “Islamic”.  Got it.

You say Obama and I say Osama,

you say ISIS and I say DAESH,

ISIS, DAESH, Bernie Sanders,

let’s call the whole thing off.

    So Trump is the colon, and FR is the explosive diarrhea.

    The coming FR purity ‘purge’ will be…messy.
